Flex Logix is developing configurable semiconductor IP cores that are smaller, faster, and consume less power than conventional, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
Founded by former Rambus CEO Geoff Tate, Flex Logix is creating cores for field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) that allow a chip to change its identity even after it has been shipped. Flex Logix will be the first to provide chipmakers with the power of programmable logic without the cost, performance, and power penalties typically associated with FPGAs. The technology will enable cheap, portable devices to reconfigure themselves to offer a range of functionalities, from rich graphics and rendering to powerful computer vision.
